Today, this need is nowhere more visible than in software development, delivery, and operation – a fast-growing sector where industry stakeholders, education and training providers, and professionals need to keep up with emerging technologies and new trends. The European Software Skills Alliance (ESSA) project will address this challenge and deliver a sustainable strategy for closing the skills gaps and fulfilling the need for professional demand for software services. To this end, the ESSA receives funding from the Erasmus+ programme and involves ambitious partners from industry and academia.
Objectives of the project
The global objective of this project is to design and implement a highly innovative, effective and sustainable Software Skills Strategy and VET Training Programme for Europe that will ensure the skills needs of the rapidly expanding and evolving software sector can be met in the short, medium and long term. The strategy will be market demand-led at its core, continuously adapting and evolving to address current and future market needs in order to support growth, innovation and competitiveness in the sector.
